  • In a Pan, warm the oil and add the Pepper, Cumin Seeds and Saute them for couple of seconds and then add Gram Dal and Red Chilly and saute.
  • Saute them till the Gram Dal is done, be careful not to burn any ingredients. So saute them on Low flame.
  • Once the gram dal is done, remove it in a Mixer and allow it to Cool Down.
  • Once it has cooled down, add the tamarind and grind it into a Smooth paste.
  • Meanwhile, in the same pan add the Ridge Gourd and cook it.
  • Cook it till the Ridge Gourd is completely done. 
  • Now add the Cooked Ridge Gourd to the Dal Paste and Grind well.
